Mr. Neal: (00:00)
On the Caring for Americans with Supplemental Help Act of 2020.

Madam Speaker: (00:07)
The clerk will report the title of the bill.

Speaker 1: (00:09)
HR 9051, a bill to amend the internal revenue code of 1986 to increase recovery rebate amounts to $2,000 for individuals and for other purposes.

Madam Speaker: (00:21)
Pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from Massachusetts, Mr. Neal, and the gentleman from Texas, Mr. Brady. Each will control 20 minutes. The Chair now recognizes the gentleman from Massachusetts.

Mr. Neal: (00:33)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. I ask that unanimous consent for all members to have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on the bill under consideration.

Madam Speaker: (00:44)
Without objection, so ordered.

Mr. Neal: (00:46)
I yield myself time as I might consume.

Madam Speaker: (00:49)
The gentleman is recognized for such time as he may consume.

Mr. Neal: (00:51)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. We are here today at a moment of extreme hardship for families across the country. Last week, both the House and the Senate passed bipartisan legislation that would provide relief for people who are struggling to make ends meet. That package includes a wide variety of provisions that will allow Americans who are at the end of their ropes to stay in their homes and to put food on the table. Despite the fact that the Trump administration was part of the negotiations for the legislation and approved of all the measures that it contained, the President unexpectedly decided to delay signing the package into law for several days. This stalling was an act of theater that cost the American people millions of dollars in terms of pandemic-related unemployment assistance that they desperately need.

Mr. Neal: (01:41)
Fortunately, last night, the President finally signed the bill, and at last workers and families can exhale a bit knowing that aid is on the way. The primary reason that the President provided for holding up his signature was the enactment of this important legislation that we are about to undertake in the next 40 minutes. Democrats agree that families deserve more and that’s why I introduced the CASH Act on Christmas Eve to increase the payments in the relief package to $2,000, the exact amount the President said he wants.

Mr. Neal: (02:16)
Now I introduced this legislation on Christmas Eve, Madam Speaker, with the following parable in mind. Jacob Marley forewarned that the three ghosts would visit Ebenezer Scrooge to warn him about the path to redemption. So he started with Christmas past that we might start here with Christmas past acknowledging that three years ago, one of the largest tax cuts in American history that overwhelmingly came to people at the very top, including a top individual rate cut of 39 to 37.5%, and a corporate rate cut from 36% to 21%, were part of that endeavor.

Mr. Neal: (03:03)
In the Christmas present, there are 20 million Americans who are receiving unemployment insurance, more than 350,000 dead, and 19 million people infected with this pandemic. So for the Christmas future, Marley warned Ebenezer Scrooge there was a way for redemption and that was through a new generosity and a new kindness, and we could emulate that here this afternoon by raising that impact payment from $600 to $2,000. The miracle of this season would remain the triumph of light for those who desperately need our assistance.

Mr. Neal: (03:42)
We could have passed this bill four days ago, but our colleagues on the other side went against the President’s wishes and they blocked it. So here we are today, back again, to try to get a bigger check for the American people, and I sincerely hope that the House Republicans have had a change of heart and will join us in passing the CASH Act. Let’s pass this bill and do what’s right for our neighbors back home as they simply try to survive each day, and I reserve the balance of my time.

Madam Speaker: (04:12)
The gentleman from Massachusetts reserves the balance of the time. The gentleman from Texas is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (04:17)
Madam Speaker, I yield myself as much time as I may consume.

Madam Speaker: (04:20)
The gentleman is recognized for such time as he may consume.

Mr. Brady: (04:22)
Madam Speaker, last fall, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Washington Democrats refused to accept a bipartisan COVID relief bill, insisting instead on more than $3 trillion of observed policies, from marijuana banking to early release of criminals. Months ago, they even rejected a nearly $2 trillion COVID release proposal by President Trump. Many Americans knew right then that leading Democrats were sabotaging the economy ahead of the election for political gain. During those crucial months, while Speaker Pelosi stalled COVID relief, thousands of Americans died, tens of thousands of small businesses closed, hospitals and nursing homes struggled, while millions of Americans were left jobless. In the election, Democrats in Congress paid a steep price for this cruel inaction, with voters giving house Republicans nearly two thirds of the seats needed to take back the majority.

Mr. Brady: (05:24)
I thank President Trump for signing bipartisan legislation, even with its flaws, that included several separate bills that hitched a ride on the annual funding bill for the government, including COVID relief, a first ever ban on surprise medical bills, and $328 billion in urgent tax relief for families and local businesses. I recognize that today’s CASH Act will pass with bipartisan support, Republicans and Democrats alike, and I respect the decision of each member of Congress. But for me, I worry that this whopping $463 billion won’t do what’s needed, stimulate the economy, or get the jobless back to work. At this point in the recovery, the fact is it’s hard to stimulate a main street that’s locked down by local politicians. This won’t help local restaurants get their workers permanently back, or hospitality and convention industries rehire their workers for the long-term, and won’t help get energy workers back on the job.

Mr. Brady: (06:33)
Will this stimulate our local economies? Not a lot. What we know is that much of this extra $1,600 will go to pay down credit card debt, or savings, or even make new purchases online at Walmart, Best Buy or Amazon. So rather than merely sending checks to credit card companies, this half a trillion dollars could more than double the number of small businesses and mid-size businesses getting PPP forgivable loans that hire their workers and stay alive through the recovery. It could make sure airline workers have secure jobs for more than just a few months and do more [inaudible 00:07:17] replenish frontline healthcare workers. We should be focused on the families that are hurting most, none more than the eight million Americans who lost their job due to COVID. Our top priority, in addition to defeating the virus, is to get them back to work.

Mr. Brady: (07:37)
So far, Congress has already approved more than $20,800 directly to a family of four with one parent out of work. That’s on top of their state unemployment benefits. If we want to do even more for the jobless, this same huge amount of money today could give every unemployed worker from COVID, and their employer, a $50,000 incentive to return to work. With this huge amount of money, you could even give the bottom 90% of workers in America an income tax free year for 2021, a full year where you go to work each day for yourself, rather than for Washington. Can you imagine what a no tax ’21 would do for low and middle income families, workers and the local economy? Or we can simply hold this money back, not hastily spend another half trillion dollars we don’t have, while we assess the impact vaccinations are having on consumer confidence and then locking of the economy.

Mr. Brady: (08:47)
There are a lot of ways to spend money if that’s the goal, but in my view, let’s be smart about it. Let’s target assistance to those who need it most. The Ways and Means Committee should be the place to explore and analyze these options, not just have a bill that spends over $400 billion hastily dropped on us at the last minute. I know working together, Republicans and Democrats, we can do better to help people get back to work and truly help this recovery. I reserve the balance of my time.

Madam Speaker: (09:22)
The gentleman from Texas reserves the balance of his time. The gentleman from Massachusetts is recognized.

Mr. Neal: (09:28)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. With that, I’d like to recognize the gentleman from Michigan, Congressman Kildee, for two minutes.

Madam Speaker: (09:34)
Gentleman from Michigan is recognized for two minutes.

Congressman Kildee: (09:37)
Thank you, Madam Speaker, and I thank the Chairman for his leadership on this and for recognizing me. I stand in strong support of this legislation. The American people are struggling. We hear from them every single day and they need this additional relief now. The recent coronavirus relief bill passed by Congress obviously is long overdue. The House wanted to pass relief last May, but Republicans refused, and then the pandemic has only gotten worse, and the pain has been worse for so many families and small businesses. So while the relief bill does supply short term relief, it was regrettable to see President Trump delay signing this legislation, that decision, that delay had consequences. It hurt families with greater uncertainty and in some cases caused people to lapse their benefits.

Congressman Kildee: (10:29)
I did support the legislation that included the $600 stimulus checks because that was all we could get the other side to agree to. But it’s obviously not enough and that’s why I support this legislation, $2,000 in direct payments for Americans who are struggling. I, along with my Democratic colleagues have pushed for these higher payments for some time, and now President Trump agrees. The leader of the Republican party stands in support of this effort. These $2,000 payments, every member of Congress should support them. This would make a difference in the lives of Americans who are facing the greatest uncertainty that they’ve experienced,. for many of them in their lifetime. Putting money in their hands, allowing them to pay their bills, which will help them support those small businesses but also probably more importantly can give them some of the financial support they need in order to make the decisions that they have to make to protect their families.

Congressman Kildee: (11:36)
President Trump changed his mind and supports this legislation. That’s why we acted. We would have included much larger payments in the legislation had he spoken up sooner, but it’s never too late to do the right thing. President Trump stood up. We support this legislation.

Mr. Neal: (11:53)
One minute.

Madam Speaker: (11:54)
Gentleman is recognized for an additional one minute.

Congressman Kildee: (11:56)
Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Thank you, Madam Speaker. This is a moment where we can come together, Democrats and Republicans and including the President of the United States, and do something big and bold that will help American families get through this most difficult time. So I commend the Chairman for his work and moving quickly and putting this legislation together. I commend those on the other side who will stand with us today and support this. And it is my hope that this legislation will quickly go over to the Senate, they will get the message and send this legislation onto the President, wherever he may be. He’ll sign the bill and we can get this help to the American people. With that I thank the Chairman and I yield back the remainder of my time.

Madam Speaker: (12:35)
The gentleman from Michigan’s time has expired. The gentleman from Texas is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (12:38)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. I’m proud to yield one minute to the gentleman from Oregon, Mr. Schrader.

Madam Speaker: (12:44)
Gentleman from Oregon is recognized for one minute.

Congressman Schrader : (12:46)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. I rise today to speak against the CASH Act. This is an ineffective and poorly targeted approach to aiding Americans in distress. It is clearly a last minute political maneuver by the President and extremists on both sides of the political spectrum who have been largely absent during months of very hard negotiations. They have chosen to tweet their opinions instead of coming to the table to get aid in the hands of Americans and small businesses that need it most. Over the last six months and especially in the last few weeks as holidays loomed and COVID’s cases skyrocketed, my problem solvers caucus work with senators on both sides of the aisle, and House and Senate leadership, to craft legislation that includes vetted programs like the PPP and unemployment compensation, that have been improved upon since the start of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Congressman Schrader : (13:33)
I feel for all those who are suffering today due to financial hardship and look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on a bipartisan bicameral basis to continue to find ways to help provide relief. People who are making six figure incomes, have not been impacted by COVID-19, do not need checks. We’ve had nine months to fix this program to get it to people who need it most. That has not happened. [crosstalk 00:13:58] Let’s reverse course and target those in need. I yield back.

Madam Speaker: (14:01)
Gentleman’s time has expired. Gentleman from Texas reserves. The gentleman from Massachusetts is recognized.

Mr. Neal: (14:07)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. Let me recognize the gentleman from New York, Mr. Suozzi, for two minutes, that he did a great job on the surprise billing legislation that passed in the COVID Act. Two minutes.

Madam Speaker: (14:19)
Gentleman from New York is recognized for two minutes.

Congressman Suozzi : (14:21)
Thank you, Madam Speaker, and thank you Mr. Chairman for your leadership on the CASH Act, and also as you mentioned on the surprise billing act. It’s really amazing the relief we’re going to be giving to consumers this year, on a bipartisan basis with your leadership, we’re going to be making people’s lives a lot better. So thank you so much for the work you’ve done on both the CASH Act and on the work to address surprise billing.

Congressman Suozzi : (14:43)
Madam Speaker, the effects of this pandemic have been cruelly uneven. Some remain unscathed, working remotely and still healthy. While millions of others are awash in misery, unable to return to work or pay their bills, even funeral bills for lost loved ones. While the stock market has hit a new record today, there are still bodies stored in refrigerator trucks. While online retail and grocery stores are booming, airline, Broadway and mom and pop store employees have been laid off, and life savings invested in small businesses have been wiped out.

Congressman Suozzi : (15:26)
The President’s cynical ploy to threaten the COVID relief package to obscure his dark of night pardons has now resulted in a fighter’s chance that we can pass this $2,000 stimulus check legislation, if we can only get Mitch McConnell to finally show some empathy. Let’s pass this bill and then let’s immediately work to send the billions necessary to save our state and local governments before they fire police officers, teachers, and frontline workers, which will only result in more unemployment checks from us and financial ruin for those families and the communities they serve. Let’s rebuild our infrastructure and put Americans back to work and let’s build back better. We can do this if we remember why we are here, and we both Democrats and Republicans recognize that outside of this beltway fantasy land, millions of Americans are desperately pleading for our help.

Congressman Suozzi : (16:22)
Thank you, Madam Speaker, and I yield back.

Madam Speaker: (16:24)
Gentleman from New York yields back. The gentleman from Massachusetts reserves. The gentleman from Texas is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (16:30)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. I yield two minutes for the gentleman from Wisconsin, Mr. Grothman.

Representative Grothman: (16:35)
Well, as I look around-

Madam Speaker: (16:37)
The gentleman is recognized for two minutes.

Representative Grothman: (16:39)
Thank you. Well, as I look around the room here, it looks like I’m in the U.S. Congress. I mean, I see the American flag there. George Washington’s over there. It says “In God We Trust.” But looking at this bill today, it makes me feel like we’re in the parliament of Afghanistan, Burundi, Yemen, or Bolivia. Do we really think the way to improve the quality of life for Americans is to just print more money from the fed? If you look around, we’re going to be printing another $400 billion. Does anybody look lately at what’s going on with the monetary supply? M1 up 50%, M2 up 20%. Don’t people realize that when just people print more money, it’s not a way to make our citizens wealthier, it’s just a way to debase the currency? The way for a wealthy country is to work hard through frugality and through improving one’s skills, not by having the fed print money.

Representative Grothman: (17:40)
Last time that we sent out $1,200 checks, I stopped by my local Walmart and the people in charge of the electronics section said they’d never seen such sales in their life. Is that really going to improve the lot of Americans, to go over and buy some more electronic junk from China? Apparently so. And let’s not forget when we look at inflation, we have inflation right now. Twice in the recent past, we’ve changed the definition on what inflation is. So we do have inflation, it’s just that we keep changing the definition to mask it. That’s why the market is up. The market is up because we really do have inflation. We’re in the U.S. Congress. We should not think the way to prosperity is just printing money. We should act like we’re the United States. It’s why, through my whole life, other countries like to invest in the dollar. They respect the value of the dollar more than the national currencies of Burundi, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Bolivia. Those are four poor countries, that’s why I picked them out. So I encourage Senator McConnell to hold a line here to act responsibly. Thank you.

Madam Speaker: (18:52)
Has expired. Gentleman’s time has expired. Gentleman from Texas reserves and the gentleman from Massachusetts is recognized.

Mr. Neal: (19:03)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. Might I remind the gentleman that this is not about creating a path to prosperity. This is a better path about creating a path to liquidity, which subsequently creates a path to demand for people at the lower end of the economic spectrum, 20 million of whom are not working at the moment through no fault of their own. And with that, let me yield two minutes to the gentleman from Virginia, an excellent member of the Ways and Means Committee, Congressman Beyer, for two minutes.

Speaker 1: (19:28)
Gentleman from Virginia is recognized for two minutes.

Representative Beyer : (19:31)
Thank you, Madam Speaker, and I rise to support the CASH Act which will send $2,000 checks to the American people. I want to thank Chairman Neal for coming together very quickly to create this act in a thoughtful way. The American people are hurting this holiday season and they need our help. Our bill would increase those payments to $2,000 which should also include adult dependents, students, and realizing that $600 is not enough for people facing eviction and hunger. For many, this will just pay a past through rental bill from July. It’s good and important that we’re sending support to small businesses, strong unemployment aid, nutrition, and rental assistance, but this relief is coming seven months later than it should have, and it’s vital that Congress not penny pinch the American people now. This CASH bill is bipartisan and as Senator Mitch McConnell would put it on the Senate floor, it would be bicameral.

Representative Beyer : (20:21)
Let me push back to the this is too much. We have 40 million Americans who work full-time, make less than $18,000 last year. The minimum wage, $ 7.25, there isn’t a single two bedroom apartment you can rent in a county in America for that money. Tens of millions without healthcare. My family sells new cars and used cars, and I’ve watched the debt burden of so many people just rise and rise and rise over the years. Is there a better way? Well you know, my Republican friends hate it when so-called big government decides what we need. The best way to let people manage their family is to put the money in their hands, give them that American freedom. Somehow we can print money to do a $4 trillion tax cut over 20 years, but we can’t print enough money to help the American people. This is a good bill. I salute my Chairman, Richie Neal, and I hope every Democrat and every Republican will vote for it, and I yield back.

Madam Speaker: (21:13)
Gentleman from Virginia yields back. The gentleman from Massachusetts reserves. The gentleman from Texas is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (21:18)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. I yield one minute to the gentleman from California, Mr. McClintock.

Madam Speaker: (21:22)
Gentleman from California is recognized for one minute.

Representative McClintock: (21:24)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. Let’s get this straight. The small shopkeeper who’s lost their entire savings because of the lockdowns, will get the same $2,000 grant as the government bureaucrat, who’s been enjoying a steady paycheck at home for the past 10 months. This money is wholly inadequate for those who’ve been harmed by the lockdowns and wholly unnecessary for those who have not. And this free money doesn’t come from heaven, it comes from the future earnings of those who will be struggling to get back on their feet, making the post lockdown recovery more difficult and prolonged. And much of the burden of this debt will fall on the young, who’ve already born the brunt of these lockdowns.

Representative McClintock: (22:11)
It is in a real sense, a massive wealth transfer from the future to the present, from the young to the old, and from those who have been hurt by the lockdowns to those who have not. There is only one way to end the suffering caused by these lockdowns and that is to end to them. I yield back.

Mr. Speaker: (22:33)
The gentleman’s time has expired. Gentleman from Texas reserves. The gentleman from Massachusetts is recognized.

Mr. Neal: (22:40)
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Let me yield one minute to the gentlelady from Texas, Congresswoman Jackson Lee.

Mr. Speaker: (22:45)
The gentlelady from Texas is recognized for one minute.

Congresswoman Jackson Lee: (22:47)
I thank the gentleman and the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee for his distinguished leadership. I thank our Speaker her for her persistent leadership and all of the Democratic members and Republican members who understand what this legislation is. It is a survival cash payment for Americans making under a certain amount, which means they are on the survival pathway. Maybe they haven’t spoken to the constituents of, I believe, probably 90% of the members of this Congress who have said they are on the edge and they’re about to go over. They can’t pay their rent. They can’t buy food. They’re in food distribution lines. Before I came here Sunday, I was in a place at a church in a [inaudible 00:23:35] greenhouse in [inaudible 00:23:36] where we were giving out food. I asked during the spring for $3,000. I was willing to go for $600 so that desperate Americans get enough to survive.

Congresswoman Jackson Lee: (23:47)
I am supporting this. I ask my friends and colleagues on both sides of the aisles, recognize that when you are privileged to stand in a place like this where the constitutional fathers gave us the opportunity to lead [crosstalk 00:24:00] this government, stand for the American people. I support the CASH Act because it is survival for Americans. I yield back.

Mr. Speaker: (24:08)
The gentlewoman’s time has expired. The gentleman from Massachusetts reserves. The gentleman from Texas is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (24:12)
I yield myself 30 seconds.

Mr. Speaker: (24:14)
The gentleman’s recognized.

Mr. Brady: (24:15)
I would point out to my colleague that nothing in this bill helps anyone get back to work, not a dime to the eight million people who are left unemployed because of COVID, not a dime to help our small and medium sized businesses, not a dime for main street. With that, I continue to reserve.

Mr. Speaker: (24:35)
Gentleman reserves. The gentleman from Massachusetts.

Mr. Neal: (24:38)
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Let me yield one minute to the gentleman from Texas, Congressman Green.

Mr. Speaker: (24:44)
The gentleman from Texas is recognized for one minute.

Congressman Green: (24:46)
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, and I thank the Chair for yielding the time. Mr. Speaker, at some point on the infinite continuum that we call time, we will all have to account for our time. We’re all going to have to answer the question where were you when a pandemic was gripping the land? What did you do when you have the opportunity to put money in the pockets of people who needed it? Where was your courage when you had the chance to cast a vote to make a difference in the lives of people? I say to you, my dear friends, this is the time for us to take a stand for the American people. Let’s vote yes to put money in their pockets because we caused them to stay home as a result of the pandemic. The government is for this reason. This is why the government exists, to take care of people. I yield back the balance of my time.

Madam Speaker: (25:43)
Gentleman yields back the balance of his time. The gentleman from Massachusetts reserves. The gentleman from Texas is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (25:50)
I reserve.

Madam Speaker: (25:51)
The gentleman from Texas reserves. The gentleman from Massachusetts is recognized.

Mr. Neal: (25:55)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. So let me remind members of this chamber why we’re here today. The CARES Act passed this House with, I think, five dissenters in the entire chamber. That was months and months ago. People exhausted the $1,200 that we allocated based upon our tax system, and even the difficulty that we had in trying to find adequate identification for those in America as joint filers making $124,000 a year, single filers making under $12,000 a year. Who can live on $12,000 a year? That’s $1000 a month. People have exhausted that benefit. They have tried earnestly and seriously to overcome these obstacles that were created for them, not because of anything they did. We are not here because of malfeasance, speculation that derailed Wall Street in 2008, or corruption. We’re here because of an international pandemic, when members of the American family at the lower end of the economic spectrum, are hurting.

Mr. Neal: (27:28)
When we sought advice on putting together the CARES Act, the Speaker and myself in particular, in those very earnest days with Secretary Mnuchin, we sought the advice of the best economists, former treasury secretaries, members of the Federal Reserve Board, people that do this every single day, and they all said, “You need to act with speed and determination, speed to get that money into the hands of people who will actually spend it,” and that’s precisely what we did. We got it to people at the lower end of the economic spectrum. But as we proceed now to the new year, these people need another infusion of cash.

Mr. Neal: (28:17)
And I’m going to go back to this point that I think is something that we need to remember. Three years ago, this House, over the objection of myself and many others, passed a tax cut that clearly benefited the people at the very top of the economic spectrum, the top 1% in particular. Dividends, buybacks, a top cut in the corporate rate from 36 to 21% and the top rate into the individual side from 39 to 37%, and we can’t find it in our hearts in this holiday season, again, based upon the Charles Dickens parable of a Christmas Carol, to provide $2,000 worth of assistance to our brothers and sisters at the bottom end of economic income. This chamber is better than that. I reserve the balance of my time.

Madam Speaker: (29:27)
Gentleman reserves the balance of his time. The gentleman from Texas-

Mr. Brady: (29:31)
I will reserve as well.

Madam Speaker: (29:32)
Gentleman from Texas reserves.

Mr. Neal: (29:40)
I was hoping that the ranking member might have more to say.

Mr. Brady: (29:44)
I am prepared to close when you are, Mr. Chairman.

Mr. Neal: (29:45)
Well, we’re not prepared to close, but we were hoping that you might intermittently-

Mr. Brady: (29:49)
I’ll tell you what. With your permission, I’ll yield myself as much time as I may consume.

Madam Speaker: (29:58)
Gentleman from Texas is recognized for such time as he may consume.

Mr. Brady: (30:02)
Madam Speaker, you can say a lot about this Congress, but you cannot say we have not worked together and appropriated remarkable funding to help families defeat this COVID, to get back on their feet, to save small businesses. And a good example is that so far, Congress, both parties, have already approved more than $20,800 direct cash payments to a family of four with one parent out of work. That’s on top of an estimated $18,000 of state unemployment benefits, a little less than $40,000 to help working families survive this COVID pandemic.

Mr. Brady: (30:46)
But today, we do nothing in this bill to help the eight million Americans who lost their job due to COVID. We could double the amount of money that goes to small businesses or mid-sized businesses, so they can rehire the workers and keep them on the payroll to try to survive and ride this out. We don’t know yet what the vaccinations will do to consumer confidence or to the lockdown. Our view, and again, we expect a number of Republicans to support this bill. In my view, we would be wiser to assess the impact of the vaccinations in the recovery going forward so that we can target relief to main street, to helping get people back to work, and to truly stimulating our local economy. That’s where we address the harm that’s been done by COVID. With that, I reserve the balance of my time.

Madam Speaker: (31:48)
Gentleman from Texas reserves the balance of his time. The gentleman from Massachusetts is recognized.

Mr. Neal: (31:54)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. I’m glad the ranking member reminded us of what we were able to accomplish together in the CARES Act, and I think that’s what we’re asking for here again this evening.

Speaker 2: (32:03)
… in the CARES Act, and I think that’s what we’re asking for here again this evening. With that, let me recognize the gentle lady from California, the Speaker of the House, Speaker Pelosi.

Speaker 3: (32:09)
The distinguished Speaker of the House is now recognized.

Nancy Pelosi: (32:13)
Thank you very much. Madam Speaker, I thank the gentleman for yielding and I thank him for his masterful work in not only bringing this legislation to the floor, but working in a bipartisan way to have so many important initiatives in the COVID and the omnibus bill that the President happily for us signed last evening. I thank him for his initiatives that are job creating, that stimulate the economy and help meet the needs of the American people.

Nancy Pelosi: (32:44)
I’m interested in the comments made by Mr. Brady, because he said we could be putting more money into small business, and we do indeed in the COVID package around $300 billion. And I think it’s important to note, Madam Speaker, that that brings it to about almost a trillion dollars since March 27th, 28th, when the President signed the CARES Act, about $950 billion for small business, nearly a trillion dollars, very important. Small business is the heart of our economy. What could be more optimistic for anyone to do, but to follow their dreams, start a small business, create jobs, create wealth, carry capital, so important. We see the importance of that to the tune of about a trillion dollars, just under a trillion dollars in these past several months.

Nancy Pelosi: (33:42)
But if you want to talk about job creation, I hope the Gentleman will join us when we go forward to do state and local, our healthcare workers, honoring our heroes, they’re at risk of losing their jobs while they risk their lives to save lives, they may lose their jobs and over a million of them have. We’re talking about healthcare workers. We’re talking about police and fire, our first responders. We’re talking about transportation, sanitation, food workers. We’re talking about our teachers, our teachers, our teachers, the custodians of our children for a large part of their day.

Nancy Pelosi: (34:18)
They are at risk of losing their jobs because of the failure of this Republican side of the aisle to support funds for state and local government to honor our heroes. We want to honor them. When we cheer them, we applaud them. Let’s give them pay. Let’s let them have job security. Let’s give them PPE, the equipment that they need to do their jobs. So if we want to talk about saving jobs or growing jobs for the purpose, the distinguished gentleman from Texas mentioned, how are we going to administer, focus on the distribution and the administration of vaccine? Where do you think that happens, but in city and County and state hospitals in large measure, by healthcare workers in those places, wherever it is distributed on a individual basis, but they are the heart of the matter. And that is why we need to go forward with another bill that invests in our state and local governments, not to talk about government, but to talk about services, healthcare services, education, transportation. So making our lives possible, making our very existence possible by what they do and without them, how do we function? So again, let’s create jobs, let’s save jobs, let’s grow jobs by administering this vaccine as fairly, as equitably as possible and free to everyone in our country. Because if we’re not protected, none of us is. Unless all of us are protected, none of us is protected.

Nancy Pelosi: (36:04)
So this $2,000, which, thank you for bringing to the floor on Christmas Eve was roundly rejected by Republic, asked for unanimous consent. This could already exist as a law if that had happened, but it didn’t. So now today we have another chance. Some of the Republicans said, Oh, if they really wanted that they would have called for a vote that day, that wasn’t true. It’s important to note, that was a proforma session and you had to have the consent of the Republicans to bring the bill to the floor. They withheld their consent, so here we are today in a legislative day where we just act with the majority to bring the legislation to the floor.

Nancy Pelosi: (36:51)
I hope it will enjoy a strong bipartisan support. The President of the United States has put this forth as something that he wants to see in terms of, and part of his signing the legislation yesterday. I hope that that view will be shared by the Republicans in the Senate because we will pass this bill today, either under suspension or under a rule where it just requires a majority vote under suspension, as you know. Two thirds vote requires a large number of Republican votes, which I hope we will have, because I do think that the American people would love to see that unity on their behalf.

Nancy Pelosi: (37:35)
We are a consumer economy. Putting money into the hands of the American people is a boost to our economy. Not much, this isn’t a big stimulus package. The COVID bill is an emergency supplemental, but this piece will make it something very important to sustaining our economy. And I thank you, Mr. Chairman, for the work that your committee did. Brandon, thank him and the others for putting in the dependent clause that people … Otherwise, you had 16 years and under would get the direct payment. But I mean, as a mother of five and grandmother of nine, I know that children are dependent after 16 years, especially if they’re still in school. And there are others who are dependent because of, for one thing and another, some physical challenges that they may have in life, who knows what goes on in a family.

Nancy Pelosi: (38:38)
But nonetheless, if they are dependent, they will be receiving the direct payment, another important boost for America’s working families, another important boost for our economy as we go forward. So let me again, thank the chairman for his work, it’s a simple vote with what more money. Our goals have been crush the virus. Crush the virus. Honor our heroes who help us crush the virus and put money in the pockets of the American people. Today we would be doing that right now. Legislation will be a lifeline for millions of Americans. It improves on the previously passed relief bill by including dependents, ensuring that families with children in college, adults living with disabilities or elderly family members can also receive relief.

Nancy Pelosi: (39:32)
Republicans have a choice. Republicans have a choice. Vote for this legislation or vote to deny the American people the bigger paychecks they need. To reject this would be in denial of the economic challenges that people are facing. And it would deny them again, the relief they need. And with that, I urge a strong bipartisan vote for the aptly named CASH Act. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

Speaker 3: (40:05)
The gentle lady from California, the Speaker of the House, yields back. The gentleman from Massachusetts reserves and the gentleman from Texas is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (40:15)
Madam Speaker, may I just inquire how much time is remaining?

Speaker 3: (40:18)
The gentleman from Texas has nine minutes remaining. The gentleman from Massachusetts has three and one half minutes remaining.

Mr. Brady: (40:36)
So Madam Speaker, we are prepared to close, and with that, I would yield myself as much time as I may consume.

Speaker 3: (40:43)
The gentleman from Texas is yielding himself such time as he may consume, the gentleman is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (40:50)
First, let me congratulate to the Chairman the Ways and Means Committee Mr. Neal, for working so closely together on our bipartisan priorities. Any surprise medical bills, when you go to the ER or you have a scheduled medical procedure, ensuring starting at the end of next year for the first time, when you go to that doctor’s procedure, you have a true and honest bill in advance of that will be so crucial for so many patients. And I also thank the Chairman for working so closely in a bipartisan way on the COVID tax relief provisions and the first reforms of our temporary tax provisions in five years. So Chairman Neal, I applaud your work and enjoy working with you.

Mr. Brady: (41:38)
The previous speaker talked about essential workers, our firefighters, our healthcare workers, others, manufacturers have done such an amazing job. We had an opportunity earlier this year to help them. President Trump, in his executive order proposed a payroll tax holiday for nearly five months for these workers. That would have meant for those essential workers that firefighter, that hospital worker, that nurse, that they would have kept, a family of four, would have kept an extra $5,000 in their paycheck throughout the holidays.

Mr. Brady: (42:14)
If we really wanted to help essential workers, our Democrat friends would not have blocked that payroll tax holiday and would have adopted our bill to make sure that those taxes, payroll taxes, were forgiven. As for state and local governments, they too, even though I disagree with many of the decisions deserve our thanks. And thankfully, because this was the most rapid labor market recovery following a crisis in history, and we recovered more than half the jobs we’ve lost, state and local revenues this year are almost even down a mere less than 1%. Thank goodness Congress came together in the CARES Act to provide more than $150 billion to those state and local governments to be able to address these needs and continue to function. I will tell you too, that again, I speak only for myself. The best way to help struggling families is to get them back to work.

Mr. Brady: (43:27)
The best way to save our Main Street is to give our small and medium sized businesses more help than we have. This bill does neither. I don’t believe, I think it is correct, when the earlier speaker said, this is not a stimulus. It is not and it does nothing to help get people back to work. I worry that as we spend another nearly half a trillion dollars so hastily that we’re not targeting this help to the very Americans who are struggling the most and need that help.

Mr. Brady: (44:04)
I will also point out that, as I said earlier, Congress has come together to provide a family of four with one unemployed parent now just a little short of $40,000 of federal money in their traditional state unemployment, because we knew they were struggling. Now is the time to get them back to work. That is my personal objection to this bill. I urge Congress to pause for a moment, to assess the vaccinations over the next few months or a year to determine where next we need to weigh in, if at all on this recovery as we continue to work together to beat this virus. With that Madam Speaker, I’m honored to be here today. And I yield the balance of my time.

Speaker 3: (44:57)
The gentleman from Texas yields the balance of his time. The gentleman from Massachusetts is recognized.

Mr. Brady: (45:03)
Thank you, Madam Speaker, I am prepared to close it. I want to acknowledge the good efforts of ranking member Brady on the energy front of the tax package, as well. A series of compromised measures, she did a terrific job. I think it’s fair to say on surprise billing and not to mention USMCA. Those were very substantive accomplishments that the Ways and Means Committee led on in the 116th Congress. He mentioned that, as he was closing, he mentioned that this measure, he did not want to see treated as stimulus. And he’s right. This is not about stimulus, this is about stability. This is about building a bridge for those people who are really hurting as we turn the page on this year. This is about those who are wondering how they’re going to make the next rental payment, sustenance for the American family, how they might repair that automobile that sits in the garage idle because they couldn’t afford it. That’s what this is really about this evening.

Mr. Brady: (46:15)
I started with Charles Dickens and a Christmas Carol and the lessons of Jacob Marley. But let me conclude with a very simple description in the Epic America. When asked what it was that set America apart from the rest of the world, it was suggested it was a habit of the heart, a kindness and a decency and a goodness. And let me close the debate on that basis and urge passage of the CASH Act and $2,000 for the American people. I yield back my time.

Speaker 3: (47:00)
The gentleman from Massachusetts yields back his time. The question is, will the house suspend the rules and pass the bill, HR9051? Those in favor say, aye. Those opposed, no. In the opinion of the Chair, two thirds being in the affirmative-

Speaker 3: (47:23)
[inaudible 00:47:23] the gentleman from Texas rise.

Mr. Brady: (47:24)
Madam Speaker, on behalf of the conference, I ask for the yeas and nays.

Speaker 3: (47:29)
Pursuant to Section three of House Resolution 965, the yeas and nays are ordered pursuant to Clause Eight of Rule 30. Rule 20 further proceedings on this question are postponed.

Speaker 4: (47:53)
Great job, Danielle.

Speaker 3: (47:53)
She’ll correct it in the record. I said … Well, this is Mr. Thorn- [inaudible 00:47:59] (silence)

Speaker 3: (50:25)
Pursuant to Section Four of House Resolution 1271, the unfinished business is the further consideration of the veto message of the President on the bill, HR 6395. The clerk will report the title of the bill.

Clerk: (50:42)
HR 6395, a bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2021 for military activities of the Department of Defense and for military construction to describe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year and for other purposes.

Speaker 3: (50:59)
The question is whether the House on reconsideration pass the bill, the objections of the President to the contrary, not withstanding. The gentleman from Washington, Mr. Smith is recognized for one hour.

Mr. Smith: (51:13)
Madam Speaker for the purposes of debate, only a yield the customary 30 minutes to the gentleman from Texas, Mr. Thornberry, the ranking member of the committee pending which I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Speaker 3: (51:25)
Without objection, so ordered.

Clerk: (51:27)
And Madam Speaker, I asked unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and insert extraneous material on the veto message of the President of the United States to the bill, HR 6395.

Speaker 4: (51:40)
Without objection, so ordered.

Mr. Smith: (51:44)
Madam Speaker, I reserve my time and we’ll yield to Mr. Thornberry for his opening statement.

Speaker 3: (51:50)
The gentleman from the great state of Washington reserves his time and the gentleman from the great state of Texas is now recognized.

Speaker 5: (52:00)
Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume. Madam Speaker, I thank the chairman for yielding and once again, want to commend him for his stewardship of the committee through very challenging times. Madam Speaker, I continue to support this bill as more than 80% of the House did just 20 days ago. It’s the exact same bill. Not a comma has changed. It still prevents the military from having their pay cut. It still creates new tools to deal with a newly aggressive China. It still includes the important US Israel Assistance Act and provides help for Vietnam veterans. One thing I guess is new in the past few days because a devastating cyber attack by Russia has been exposed. But fortunately, this bill has dozens of provisions to help strengthen the country’s defenses in cyber.

Speaker 5: (53:10)
So the President has exercised his constitutional prerogative. Now, Madam Speaker, it’s up to us. Our troops, the country, indeed the world is watching to see what we will do, whether we can tune out other differences and still come together to support the men and women of the military and American national security. I would only ask that as members vote, they put the best interests of the country first. There is no other consideration that should matter. This vote is about supporting our troops and defending America. While not perfect, this bill does a good job of advancing both and should be supported. Once again, I yield back the balance of my time.

Speaker 3: (54:12)
The gentleman from Texas yields back the balance of his time. Gentlemen, suspend. The House will be in order. Members should take their conversations off the floor. The gentleman from Washington is recognized.

Mr. Smith: (54:30)
Thank you, Madam Speaker. I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Speaker 3: (54:32)
The gentleman is recognized for such time as he may consume.

Mr. Smith: (54:36)
Thank you. I rise to strongly urge members to uphold what we did in this chamber just a couple of weeks ago and what the Senate did as well. And that is, we passed an overwhelmingly bipartisan bill with roughly 80% of the vote in both the Senate and the House, the legislative branch made it absolutely clear that we support this piece of legislation. And as the gentleman from Texas just noted, we support it with very good reason. It is enormously important to give our troops the support that they need to carry out the job that we all are asking them to do. That is I think one of our minimum obligations of members of Congress and this bill reflects that. This bill is the process of a lengthy effort involving members of both chambers, both parties that have come together and put together an incredibly strong piece of legislation. That’s why it passed so overwhelmingly just a couple of weeks ago, and nothing has changed. Nothing has changed.

Mr. Smith: (55:35)
The bill is exactly the same and every little bit as important. Now the President has the right to veto it. But I think we, as members of the legislative body, have to look at the reason behind that. Was it because of something in the bill? Look, pieces of legislation come through here all the time and we occasionally miss something. And the president finds out and you to go, gosh, I didn’t know that. That’s not what happened here. I really want members to understand the President vetoed this because of something that isn’t in the bill and was never going to be in the bill, something totally unrelated to national security and something that we were not going to do in any event. There is literally no reason to veto this bill for the reasons that the President did. And certainly no reason for us not to uphold what we did in passing this bill.

Mr. Smith: (56:28)
This is really important that we exercise our legislative prerogative. There are all kinds of crucial provisions in this bill, but I’ll just point to one. And that’s the one that Mr. Thornberry mentioned earlier. To give you an idea of why it is important that the legislative branch do its job in exercising oversight of the Department of Defense and providing national security policy. And that’s the cyber issue. Thanks to the leadership of Chairman Landrum, chairman of the subcommittee that deals with this issue, ranking member Stefanik, they have worked together to really put together an incredible package to try to better address these very cyber issues that we are now facing. That is what we do in this legislation. And you know, it’s not always exciting, but it’s incredibly important to meet our obligation to our troops and to the national security of this country.

Mr. Smith: (57:20)
It is enormously important that we pass this bill. We did it once. Let’s just do it one more time and then we can all go home for the year. We can be done, and we can be proud of what we have accomplished. I urge members to vote in favor of this bill, to do what we did just a couple of weeks ago. Show the country that the legislative branch can still do its job. I guess I’ll just close on one note, which we make a lot of times, but this is the most bipartisan committee in Congress. That’s not an easy thing to achieve. We have a lot of things that we passionately disagree about in this body and we should. But on the armed services bill, we managed to come together. It’s not always easy, but we get it done. I think it is enormously important that we let the country now that that process hasn’t died.

Mr. Smith: (58:06)
We put together a product, a bi-partisan bicameral product that has gotten an overwhelming number of votes. Let’s show the American public that the legislative process works at least a little bit better than sometimes they think it does. That we can get our job done. And in this case, get our job done for the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect this country. We owe them nothing less than that. I urge a yes vote. And with that, I yield back the balance of my time. Sorry.

Speaker 3: (58:36)
The gentleman from Washington yields back his time. The gentleman from Texas yielded back his time. All time yielded back. Without objection, the previous question is ordered. The question is, will the House, on reconsideration, pass the bill of the objections of the President to the contrary, not withstanding. Under the constitution, the vote must be by yeas and nays. Pursuant to Clause eight of Rule 20, further proceedings on this question will be postponed. Pursuant to Clause Eight of Rule 20, the unfinished business is the vote on the motion of the gentleman from Massachusetts, Mr. Neal, to suspend the rules to pass HR 9051, on which the yeas and nays are ordered. The clerk will report the title.

Clerk: (59:28)
HR 9051, a bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to increase recovery rebate amounts to $2,000 for individuals and for other purposes.

Speaker 3: (59:41)
This question is, will the House suspend the rules and pass the bill? Members will record their vote by electronic device. For what purposes does a gentleman from Washington seek recognition?

Mr. Smith: (01:02:18)
Thank you. Madam Speaker, as the member designated by member Rick Larsen, pursuant to H Resolution 965, I inform the House that Congressman Rick Larson will vote yes on HR 9051.
